Subject: I wouldn't say I Married Joan was "unpopular"...
Since I Married Joan ran for a number of years and filmed over 90 shows, I wouldn't say it was "unpopular". Ratings hit? No but it had to have at least some success to had so many episodes filmed in the first place. Kinda reminds me of a remark I have seen elsewhere onhere about The Flintstones being "unpopular" and a "flop". If The Flintstones was so unpopular I wish someone would explain to me why do we still see Fruity Pebbles ceral at the local supermarkets? Vitamins bearing the Flintstones and until recently some amusement parks featuring The Flintstones on rides and such? Doesn't sound like a flop to me.

This was an ahead of its time episode -- taking the 50's standard of housewife and putting up the idea of the woman in the business world.

Of course, in today's society, women can do both...

I Uploaded This, and I give it the Yugi Moto seal of approval.

It's funnier than "Windows XP" for sure.
